Step 1: Website Introduction
Review website to better understand who we are and what we offer as a franchise system.
Step 2: Complete and submit the Information Form
The first step toward owning your own POP’S franchise is to submit your request for information. POP’S Franchise Development manager will then contact you to provide you with an introduction to POP’S and discuss how you get started towards owning your own franchise.
Step 3: Complete and Submit Confidential Application
The next step in the POP’S approval process is to submit your Confidential Application. Once you are preliminary approved you will work with your Franchise Development Manager who will review your Confidential Application and your plans to develop and operate your own POP’S Franchise.
Step 4: POP’S Beef Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)
After our team at POP’S Beef & Sausage review your application we will provide you with our Franchise Disclosure Document, typically referred to as the FDD. The FDD document is required by the Federal Trade Commission and explains in detail a POP’S Franchise. We highly recommend that you thoroughly review this document, which contains highly pertinent information regarding POP’S background, our franchise program, and a preview of any documents you will sign when becoming a franchisee.
Step 5: Due Diligence Time
Our Executive team and Development Manager will be available to answer any of your questions related to the Franchise Disclosure Document. We will also help you make arrangements to speak with some of our Franchisees to discuss the franchise opportunity and their personal experiences as a POP’S Franchisee.
Step 6: Participate in a POP’S Beef Discovery
One of our founders will conduct an evaluation call to answer any questions you may have and to conduct an interview to ensure that you becoming a POP’S Franchisee is a good fit for you and POP’S.
Once this happens we would invite you out to our Flagship store for a day in the life look into the POP’S Brand. Our Discovery Day allows for you to meet the team and understand the model better.
Step 7: Market Study and Prospect Franchise Survey
Complete a formal market study of your desired area/city of operation. We can assist with how to complete a market study in your desired market.
Step 8: Sign Franchise Agreements
Upon final approval by our executive team the next step in the process will be the signing of your franchise agreements and paying the franchise fee. Once we have countersigned your agreement, you are now officially a POP’S Franchisee. Our development team will begin working directly with you to successfully get your franchise location selected and operational!
